swear filter doesn't work.

Hi guys,

The swear filter doesn't work. I keep swearing... and I keep expecting that it'll automatically turn into ******.

What's going on?

Sorry to swear so much... Feel free to delete the post.

That's not a censored word. Are there any others which aren't automatically being censored by our system?

Lol, I must be out of touch or that it's unprofessional for me to say it at work.

I noticed it too, I'm seeing RFDers say "shit" a lot and it makes me cringe even as I type it ha.

Is it still censored in a TV newscast?

Yup, Off Topic is currently riddled with expletives, vulgarities and vile slang words. That's one of the mean reasons it has become such a toxic environment. Peeps keep going around the swear filters using leets, memes or quotes of clearly offensive aliases/content/avatars. Perhaps the RFD dev team should take a stronger/smarter approach on this (better filters/automation tools) and the mods not give up on the issue (with reasons like 'irrelevancy', 'context' or 'common speech', etc. -- there's no valid excuse for accepting this issue as it's).

Any reports on this subject that I've seen have been properly dealt with. Maybe they're not being reported?
